Cardiothoracic transplant recipients must follow a complex medication regimen after discharge. Patients, particularly heart transplant recipients who have a shorter postoperative length of stay than other organ recipients, have a limited time to master this regimen. The SMAP has shown benefits in patients' mastery of medication information, increased patient satisfaction, better preparation for discharge, and home adjustment. The program offers a structured approach for teaching patients complex medication regimens.
